Helping Students Want to Achieve


Tuesday, July 26th, 2022 from 4-5pm EST

Twenty years ago, Alex Kajitani was a struggling new teacher in one of California’s poorest neighborhoods. His students seemed unmotivated, unengaged and uninterested in what he was teaching. Demoralized and desperate, he set out on a journey to turn his class, and his life, around. Now lauded for his motivation, innovation and “real talk” on what it takes to help students succeed, this training will show educators how to engage students (and keep them engaged), manage their classrooms with creativity and confidence, and create a classroom culture where everyone thrives.
